Moisturizing face gel
Moisturizing is considered one of the most important steps in facial care. Special moisturizers not only improve the appearance of the epidermis, but also allow you to maintain the moisture level necessary for the skin. But unfortunately, not all face moisturizers are suitable, as they may have too oily consistency, clog pores or not satisfy the needs of customers.
Recently, moisturizing face gels have become very popular, which immediately became bestsellers. A huge number of brands began to release this tool in order to please their regular customers.
Features and Features
First of all, it should be noted that all gels are divided into several types:
- Moisturizing. The product has a full-fledged moisturizing effect, deeply nourishes the epidermis after the cleaning stage and significantly improves the condition of the skin.
- Refreshing. The tool not only refreshes the face, but also contributes to its tightening, providing a slight lifting effect.
- Cream gel. The basis of these products is, of course, cream. The texture itself is thicker than gel, but less heavy than cream. Such products are ideal for oily skin at any time of the year and for dry summers.
One of the main advantages of moisturizing face gels is the composition of natural ingredients. Gels have a very light texture, due to which they are quickly absorbed without leaving a greasy film, and at the same time they combine all the qualities of both cream products and gel products. Such products can be perfectly used as stand-alone products for moisturizing the skin, and as a base for makeup.
Gel products have a fairly wide range of applications. They can be used not only for the face, but also for the neck or body, as maxi after scrubbing or cleansing the skin as a lip balm, and some manufacturers recommend using them as hair masks.
The ability to use gels in a variety of ways is a very big advantage of these products.
The gel has a number of useful properties:
- Light gel promotes deep hydration and gives the face an attractive appearance and softness. After applying this product, the skin immediately feels more rested and fresh. As a rule, the product is used during the day because of its lightness; at night it is advisable to apply something more oily and thick.
- Another great property of moisturizing gels is the formation of a thin protective film on the upper layer of the epidermis, repulsing most of the external negative influences. Some of the products have therapeutic effects, they heal wounds after acne, scars, cuts.
- They are suitable for any age and skin type. Due to the fact that moisturizing gels effectively fight and eliminate acne, blackheads and blackheads, they will be an excellent tool for adolescents due to their anti-inflammatory properties. Firstly, such products do not interfere with the natural production of moisture by the skin itself, secondly they do not clog pores, and thirdly, they moisturize young problematic skin sufficiently, preventing the appearance of new inflammations.
- For ladies aged gels will become an indispensable assistant in creating makeup, they not only deeply impregnate and moisturize the skin, but also narrow the pores, increase elasticity and elasticity, giving a slight lifting effect, and also protect it from excess pore contamination.
We consider the composition
Cosmetic gels are 80% water, they do not contain parabens or fats, and that is why they have a lighter texture and consistency. Each tool has its own properties and focus, so their composition may differ, but the basis for all is similar. Usually, the basic components are various vitamins, vegetable oils, collagen, hyaluron, lactic and fruit acid, water, as well as gelatinous ingredients, which contribute to the creation of a gel structure.
There are also additional components that are added depending on the type of funds. The most popular and common ingredient is aloe vera. Everyone knows the beneficial and moisturizing properties of this plant, which is why products with it have special value and effectiveness. Recently, a large number of products with snail mucin have been produced, which also contributes to deep hydration and nutrition of the skin.
Often in the composition you can also find various oils: jojoba, peach, grape seed, cocoa and many others, providing a lifting effect and rejuvenation.
Despite the complete hypoallergenicity of moisturizing gels, which is also a great advantage, it is still recommended to conduct a small test on a small area of the skin before use. You need to apply a little gel on the face and wait about 15 minutes. If there is no allergic reaction, burning or itching, then the product is suitable for you and you can safely use it.
Before use, clean your face with gel or cleansing milk, then wipe it with a tonic and then use the gel itself. It should be applied with small dots and then distributed throughout the face, while doing acupressure.
It is advisable to massage the face for five minutes, so that the moisturizing and lifting properties of the gel reveal themselves better.
